FRANKFURT May 8 (Reuters) - E.ON expects to sell its stakes in two regional units this year rather than next, its chief financial officer said on Wednesday.

Speaking in a conference call with analysts, Marcus Schenck said he expected to sell E.ON's 63-percent stake in E.ON Westfalen Weser in mid-2013, adding that E.ON Mitte, in which E.ON owns 73 percent, would be sold a few months later.

In March, E.ON said it expected the two stakes to be sold either 2013 or 2014.
